I'm sorry you're having a hard time. I can certainly relate to being chased down by a 5yo all the time.

Can your parents have the kids for an afternoon, or even a couple of hours so you can talk...

I agree with Lturtle. My first thought was that, in their minds, to like/love/enjoy spending time with their dad's wife is a betrayal of their mother. And a reminder of their loss.

No, I don't think it's possible. Maybe in 5-10 years when the kids are able to help more and/or be more independent with their schoolwork, but not at the moment.

I would do one with legs. She is probably going to want to dress it and change its nappies :-)

We co-sleep with both our girls and they were both exclusively breastfed. There were many, many changes in sleep patterns, especially with DD1. My advice is, don't try to wake up. In fact, try to...

To answer your question, no, there isn't another way. To have a Pap smear, a vaginal examination or to have someone else catch your baby then they will need to be able to see what they're doing.

Does she wake up if you try to get up or does she just not want to fall asleep by herself?
